Method Abstract:"In this study, [investigators] measure the vacuole-cell size scaling trends in budding yeast using optical microscopy and a novel, to [their] knowledge, image analysis algorithm."
Comments p.1988 right column 2nd paragraph:"[Investigators’] measurements of average cell and vacuole size in the W303A strain were generally larger, but values for BY4741 fell within reported size ranges (see Table S2), showing that the cell outline tracing and vacuole surface reconstruction methods give similar size distributions to reported values."
